The Gastronomy Path is a new leisure area that has been inaugurated at the Casa de Campo Trade Fair Centre. Existing pavilions have been refurbished to augment the excellent range of gourmet dining opportunities already available. The surrounds of the refurbished pavilions have been freshly landscaped, and small car parks and children's play areas provided. This now makes the Paseo de la Gastronomía an attractive stopover for exhibitors, trade fair visitors, tourists and the general public.
The Casa de Campo is accessible both by metro and bus routes.
